NotesThe Oldest Parish in the Unites States. It surpasses in interest all other historic spots in old St. Augustine, this peaceful Shrine, for it was here that the city was founded-the first permanent colony of this country. But most of all one thinks of it as a religious landmark. Here the first rude chapel and altar were erected, and the mass celebrated on the 8th day of September 1565, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin.
